How to Revive Old Denim with Embroidery

DIY: Easy Embroidery

Crafitiness is not in my blood.  Sewing is always something I’ve had an interest in but never the confidence to pursue it. I might try it for real one day but for now, hand-sewing and embroidery is where I am going to start.  Embroidered jeans are so in and for a while, I have been obsessing over them, but it can be expensive. The solution? I took a pair of denim that I had lying around and began to personalize it a bit to my taste. Read More →

Perfect Summer Outfit

White & Blue: Perfect Summer Outfit

Summer has seemingly just flown by in a blink of an eye. I feel, that despite not being fully able to enjoy my summer, I had a few good weekends to make it  semi-enjoyable.What makes me feel better though are wearing my favorite colors. Colors are everything. They affect your mood and how you perceive things. White and blue make a perfect summer outfit.

Taco of the Town


School has been death. Between non-stop homework assignments, group projects, and just a lot of brain power in general, I am pooped.  It’s hard to have my second semester set in summer. It makes summer hard to enjoy. But, I suppose this is how the adult life is for everyone, especially those who work.  So now, even if I am tired, I like to go outside even if it is for a stroll around the block or for a snack.  I take advantage of the nice weather and pray I get a little bit of a tan before fall and winter come storming in.

Dare to Bare All…Shoulders

**Not Sponsored. All opinions are mine and mine alone. Everything in this post was purchased with my own money.**

For a plus-size gal like myself, it took a long time to get comfortable enough to show certain parts of my body.  These include my shoulders and my arms.  They are not the thinnest or the cutest but I am not willing to suffocate and not wear cute things just because they are not what many would consider nice to look at. Screw that.

Chilly Summer Nights: What to Wear?

So how do you wear sweaters in the summer? You don’t. But if you are the type of person who gets chilly especially during the summer nights when the temperature drops, maybe a light sweater is the way to go;as long as there is ventilation (aka boob A/C or shoulder A/C).

Flowy and Floral

With the summer heat fluctuating up and down in the city, it’s hard to dress for the day.  It is like an oven on the outside but once you are in the office or school–you are probably freezing your butt off. I usually throw on a sweater, cardigan, or kimono but today called for just some plain ol’ short and a peek-a-boo shoulder.

La Vie En Rose

It’s been so long since I posted and I apologize! My dear photographer’s computer was dying with viruses so I couldn’t have the pictures sent to me.  Beauty and the Beast is over but it doesn’t stop me from showing you this cute outfit.  I truly felt like Belle.

Fresh and Free

untitled-35

 

I always used to stay away from white because I thought it would make me look like a fat,fluffy marshmallow. Well, damn it, I don’t care anymore. White is one of my favorite shades to wear as well as black and the in between of grey. I don’t match my shoes to my bag, I don’t match anything to any part. I wear what I want and hope that it looks like me.

Dress: Free People (exact one here)// Shoes: TJ Maxx // Purse: SpreePicky (Exact one here)

I let my nerdiness show by getting this uber cute Sailor Moon purse. It comes in two colors black (Luna) and white (Artemis). I of course had to represent my girl Luna and get the Big Metal Moon purse. The interior fits your phone and maybe a tiny wallet and your keys. It’s not that roomy but I find myself using it a lot. The quality is pretty good and I always get compliments on it.

The tunic/dress from Free People is one of my summer favorites that I managed to get for a steal somehow (despite being full price on the website). I had gone to Free People downtown and found this dress in the sale section, marked down with an extra 25% off. The button on the back was missing and ripped off so I went to the register and asked if I could have another discount. They gave me another 10% off and making it final sale. I went home super happy with my $50 find.

 

What has been your favorite steal ever? Nothing will ever beat the time I got some black leather pumps from Banana Republic for $5 but this beat it because I love it and it’s super comfy.

Fall here I come.

So Long Summer Sixteen

This post comes a bit late when it is already September but technically it’s still summertime. What better way to enjoy it by wearing a very summer outfit for the last time? I’ll continue wearing dresses but this crop top/maxi combo screams summer to me.
